Official Press Release

Marvel is pleased to announce that Thor #1 has sold out at Diamond (though copies may be available at the retail level), marking a triumphant return for the God of Thunder! With the red-hot creative team of writer JMS and artist Olivier Coipel, Thor #1 has drawn acclaim from all corners and made Thor the book that everyone's talking about! To meet the demand from fans for this landmark issue, Marvel is going back to press on Thor #1, with a new cover featuring interior art from Coipel!

"The fact that we have a true A-team collaboration on what will surely become one of Marvel's flagship titles simply makes this a series you can not miss," exclaimed Adrian f. Zettlemoyer of BrokenFrontier.Com.

Jesse Schedeen of IGN.com deemed Thor #1 a "must read" and said that Thor fans will, "find a lot to like here."

That sentiment was echoed by Luke Handley of SilverbulletComicBooks.Com, who called Thor #1, "A good first issue that sets up an interesting premise and I can't wait for the return of more of the Norse Pantheon and Asgard."

"The art by Olivier Coipel is beautiful…This is how a hero should look," gushed Tim Janson of Newsarama.com.

Please note that the new Thor #1 Zombie Cover Variant will arrive in stores on July 25th. This never-before-seen cover features the stunning art of Arthur Suydam and if you missed Thor #1, this is another chance to get caught up!

After a long break, the fan-favorite Asgardian returns to the pages of Marvel comics – not a clone, not a robot, the original Thor is back! This new series of mythological proportions will dazzle both new and old readers, so pick up a copy of Thor #2 to follow the epic adventures of the mighty God of Thunder! And don't miss the Thor Poster, featuring Coipel's electrifying cover to the series' first issue!
